After a long week of early mornings and endless tasks, all you want to do on the weekend is un wind and let loose. Keep in mind that it’s important to look good while doing so.
Obtaining that wide eyed look after an exhausting work week seems nearly impossible without the help of loads of caffeine. This does not have to be the case, with a few good grooming tips you should be well on your way to that flawless celebrity look. One unsuspecting yet transforming feature on your face is your eyebrows. Your eyebrows are what shape your face and most importantly, your eyes. The same way a picture frame affects the way a picture looks, your eyebrows affect the way your eyes look. The simple act of removing stray hairs can make your eyes more noticeable.
Another hint on how to awaken your weekend look is to reduce the puffiness under your eyes. Swelling in the skin and around your eyes can make them look smaller. It definitely doesn’t help when you have been lacking sleep and proper nourishment. Place a cool damp towel underneath your eyelids for three to five minutes, this will tighten up your under eye area. Making your eyelashes look longer than they really are is one of the key steps in widening your eyes. Just curl your upper lashes and then apply dark lengthening mascara.
There are a few things that you want to avoid however. Do not apply eyeliner all the way around tour eyes. Going for the “smoky eyed look” will only make your eyes look smaller. Only apply eyeliner on your lower lash line, not inside of the rim and not all the way to the inner corner of your eye. You can apply a white or nude colored eyeliner pencil to the lower lash line to create an open eyed illusion. You do want to extend eyeliner a little bit passed the upper outer corners of your eyes. The line should move upwards, mimicking a very long eyelash.
Also, get rid of those pesky dark under eye circles. This won’t necessarily make your eyes look bigger, but dark circles will detract from even the biggest, most beautiful eyes. You can use a simple cover up stick, moisturizing cream or serum.
